It can travel up to 900 miles per second. It did not come directly towards earth. Rather, it got connected with the Earth’s magnetic environment. It caused an aurora to appear on the night of  September 3, 2012. A CME is comprised of protons and electrons. The eruption includes large amounts of electromagnetic radiation.
